Weird Slobber Straps! HELP

I got these slobber straps thinking that they would work. But I have no Idea to put them on! They don't have the hole to put the mecate through. There just a loop. Heres a few pics: If anyone knows how to tie these it would be SUPER helpful

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question, or asked the question wrong. ~Pat Parelli

The mecate goes thro the holes the leather lace is in. Google slobber straps and there are pics or drawings showing how to do it.

Those are not regular Slobber straps. They are for use with barrel racing reins that have a hole bored through the rein itself. YOu pull the thong out of one side of the slobber strap, but the rein in between the two sides of the Slobberstrap (sandwiched) and wrap it around the bit rings, and lace the thongs through the rope reins and then through the slobber strap (from inside to outside) and then tie them off.

OR, you run the rope reins through the big openning (the bit will also go through that openning) and then back on themselves a few inches and then used thread or whatever, wound around the rope rein and the doubled back portion to tie the doubled back portion to the main rein.

For the most part, the first explanantion is how I have seen them used. Not with a true mecate but with barrel reins that have the laces actaully going right THROUGH the rope.

Tiny has it right. This is the kind of slobber straps you have



And these are the kind of slobber straps you need

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
